My World, My Way in an RPG for Nintendo DS to be released on Feb. 3, 2009 by Atlus USA. Known as Sekai wa Atashi de Mawatteru (The World Revolves Around Me) in Japan, this game is all about changing one’s surroundings. The official website is here, and aw heck, here’s Atlus USA’s own sales pitch below:

“Attention, please! I am sick of RPGs with gender-confused boy heroes with their spikey hair and ginormous swords living out an absurd ultimate fantasy. Is having your village burn down all you really need to be a champion? And a scar on your face is supposed to make you… What, dark and brooding? Try uncoordinated.

“My name is Elise, and I can change things. No, seriously. When I travel, I expect things around me to go my way. If they don’t, I can make them!”

“In My World, My Way, I can change the landscape when it doesn’t suit me, make monsters give me more money, and always take the first turn in battle. I can also make enemies go away if I don’t feel like fighting, shut down their magic abilities, and even make quests solve themselves. Sure, other RPGs let you explore lands and fight monsters, but how many of them let you change the world around you?

“If those walking, talking manchild clich├ęs can leave their farms and their tiny villages — saying tearful goodbyes to their uncles or surrogate parents — and save the universe in the course of a few hours, I’m sure a resourceful girl like me will have the world wrapped around my finger in no time.”
